* Possible Problem *
It's not clear how you have each of the components connected to the TV, but you do mention that you used the "yellow" and s-video connections. Those are both video connections. The yellow is a "composite video" connection. Many TVs won't accept signals from both the yellow and the s-video connections at the same time. Usually one will override the other.

* Possible Solution *
Make sure the satellite dish is on and (hopefully) on a valid channel. Try disconnecting the s-video and checking the screen. If it didn't work, remove the yellow connection and replace the s-video cable. Check again.

If the problem persists, please explain how the TV, dish and the dvd/vcr devices are connected to each other (audio cables not relevant).

How do I hook up my dish network and a wii console at the same time if I don't have the tv/ant cable I just have the red, yellow, and white cables?


Yellow is Video, Red & White are Audio, these wire color to color from unit to TV. Use these for the Wii, and the Dish, output will wire the same, if that is the ONLY way to output the signal... You can get "Splitter" boxes that allow a two to one, switchable input. Usually though, it's out with one, in with the other. most modern TV's have multiple ways of getting video into the set. Do you have any "other" Video/Audio inputs? Like, SVHS, Composite, Component? If so then you use one each and choose of the menu on the TV. Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

How do I hook up a HD satallite dvr to a av reciever dvd player and HDTV using HDMI cables


Things You’ll Need:
  • HD television
  • HD satellite or cable receiver
  • DVD player
  • Stereo receiver
  • AV cables
  • Cable connector
  • HDMI cables
Step1Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar). Step2Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV. Step3Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row. Step4Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV. Step5Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will). Step6Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal. Hope that helps..........

When tv is turned on with cable channels picture is snowy. when dvd or vhs tape played through tv the picture is snowy


Try using the video inputs
What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.

I have proscan 56'projection tv when turn on only have sound and close caption no picture Please some one help1!!! thank you.


check the video connection that is connected to the tv. If you are using RCA style plugs (red, white, and yellow) you can try swapping the colors around (put the red in the white, the yellow in the red, and the white in the yellow on the tv and your other device....cable box, vcr, dvd, etc.) this is a great way to test the cable you are using to send video to the tv. it might just be the cable!

Salutations elderhostel,

Looking at your unit, it would appear that you would need to connect your VCR to the line listed Video In 1. Standard setup would allow for the red and white audio connections, and the yellow video connection (or S-video if your VCR provides this output). You then should be able to select Video 1 with your TV/Video button on your remote.

I hope this helps.

BLACK SCREEN WITH SOUND


Is the TV connected to cable? Is there a cable box? Is it connected to a satellite box? How is the signal connecting to the TV - the F connector, the red,white,yellow, red,white,,s-video or component RCA jacks? If you can see the onscreen menu then it usually indicates that the TV is working fine and the problem is with the signal into the TV.
